I shall also be beating a path to the gym as I have neglected that for a wee while and need to be punished.

Well to be fair I didnt say it had been fun  

Do you realise that it is 30 mins til bedtime, you still need to plump up your cushions, wipe down the kitchen units and brush your teeth before bed

Kitchen I did ages ago.

I'm under a blankie watching Homeland and doing a bit of (easy/repetitive) work.

You should have said, I could have loaned you one of mine.

While yesterday's early frosty sunny chilly pretty run was lovely for all the aforementioned adjectives, I didn't enjoy the running bit much. It's as though my legs are either bored (hills, mud, speedwork etc to come, so I know the answer to that one) or actually a bit intimidated by what they'll have to do next April.

Appreciation of positive mental attitude aside, I've been saying to myself that a marathon can't possibly be worse than a migraine, and I've got through countless thousands of those just by saying "it will finish, eventually".

Right. Jobs to be done, money to be earned. Have fun, all.

Afternoon all,

sounds like some top racing, training, decorating and sausaging (in no particular order).  I ran in a very pretty sunset on Saturday, but was disappointed to miss the parakeets (they were not in their usual roosting tree next to the track).

PMA much underestimated Jj- I'm currently reading feet in the clouds which does go on about this.  Although I'm rubbish at it (I think because I'm more of a glass half empty person) I did actually get visualisation to calm me down in the immediate run up to IMDE.

Totally agree with the PMA, also small intermediate goals take away the enormity of the task at the end

I have done everyones swim for them with a main set of 1600 continual at an easy pace so I have another benchmark, gym done, shopping done and currently noshing tomotoe soup with grated cheese

Top work Seren!

Morning all. I've been a busy girl and not been able to keep up everywhere but am hoping for a calmer week.

Project sun 4hrs at Brighton starts today. I feel a bit wobbly as I was really hoping to have Sally coach me again, she worked wonders with me for Cardiff half. But the wedding is coming and we've started to pay out lots of money for things so coaching will have to wait! Well, the wedding itself is aaAAAgess away but paying for stuff happens a lot earlier. Anyway I can't afford a coach *weep*, but I am for the first time ever going to follow a marathon plan and focus on running. (No swimming yeeehaaaaa!!)

From what I can gather from the book and the P&D thrread I'm lurking on, from now until Christmas is slow and building up mileage. Excellent.... slow I *can* do

interesting seeing how we changed aims and plans as we went along.even in ther last month changing the marathon i would run.......and balancing the marathon training with some bike and occassional swimming.....i really think the bike training helped for the run training
